Worms, Bites, and Life



Every 6 months I take a chewable tablet that treats roundworm, whipworm, pinworm/threadworm, hookworm, and tapeworm (as you can see the worm types are clearly pictured on the box :o). 
 
 
Since recovering from African tick bite fever, I've been thinking of worms and bites lately.

After sharing a Bible story in a village one evening, I saw a beautiful scene like the one below.



 African Acacia Tree

 
It made me think of some of the different concepts people have of life in Africa.  
 

 
Some may think of beautiful Acacia trees with inspiring African music playing in the background.


And there truly are glimpses of such things.
 

But that night as I turned to my side on the floor I was sleeping on, itching my bites (mostly mosquito), staring at the rat scurrying by, praying that people would know God's love for them through the next day's Bible story...  


I thought to myself, this is a more what life is like.
